During our Escapes month on Ohdeedoh, we are posting great photos and tips for traveling with children from our readers. Please check here for all the details. Hope to hear from you soon.

Fashionable 10-month old Samuel got his "honk-shoos" on the beach while vacationing on Martha's Vineyard. Sea air, the lull of the waves - it's all good...

The location where the photo was taken: Long Point, Martha's Vineyard, MA

Your favorite baby or child-friendly activity there:
My favorite activity was nap time on the beach where I could watch my little man snooze to the sound of the waves and close my eyes for a little bit while snuggling beside him. Is there anything better than napping on the beach?

Your best tip or words of wisdom for traveling with kids: Try to stick to nap times and bedtimes as much as possible. I know some of my traveling companions got annoyed by this but it made a world of difference in Sammy's mood both on vacation and when we got home.

Your favorite way to make it feel like home:
My favorite way to make a vacation spot feel like home is to unpack when we get there and always include a few "from home" favorites like foods and books.

An item you MUST take with you when traveling:
A travel must have (with a ten month old): This little high chair by Phil and Ted's.
